Wee Papa Girl Rappers


Wee Papa Girl Rappers

The Wee Papa Girl Rappers were one of the first female British hip hop groups to make an impact. The duo consisted of Sandra and Timmie Lawrence and were primarily active on the British music scene in the late 1980s and early 1990s. [cite news|url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Wee+Papa+Girl+Rappers |title=Discog's Wee Papa Girl Rappers page|accessdate=2008-03-13] Ironically, the non-hip-hop song “Wee Rule” is considered to be their most popular song and reached the #6 position in the UK. (Jive, 1988). Another song, “Heat it Up,” was a popular dance song at the time.

The group released two albums on the prestigious Jive Records before the duo split, but both at the time and now the group is viewed with a certain amount of embarrassment by the British hip hop community [ [http://www.asue68.dsl.pipex.com/rufbeats/rufsays/guidegreatbritishhistory.html] ] because of its pop oriented approach. However, as part of the first groups to break through into the mainstream in Britain, the group brought this new style of music to the attention of a wider audience and greatly helped the establishment of British hip hop—as well as paving the way for later British female pop acts.
